I think this is a great move for the shop the old one was very cramped. It's also nice that they may include a gallery or something, that arts district will have several galleries now, along the easy access to the museums. I imagine the location will be more visible to, especially once the new arena is up and running.

Rendeings shared on Facebook. As you can see, Bart Shaw is the architect. He has been making waves for his designs lately.

Well that's... different. 

I'd welcome it. Adds more architectural diversity.

I actually kinda like the building, but that street-facing giant wall is awful.

I disagree.  I think that will be a very nice addition to the coming make-over of Montgomery.

The street frontage along Montgomery is a made up of a very large arena surrounded by about 50 acres of surface parking lots. Not very pedestrian scaled. So the building doesn't focus on  Montgomery street. It does allow for pedestrian traffic to find its way to the building from the rest of The Cultural District. The siting also acknowledges the scale of the bungalows along Crestline Road and places the parking field along the alley at the south side of the site.

Drove by this site yesterday.  Lot of dirt moving, big hole being dug.

Here is a video by Bart Shaw showing the installation of what they've deemed the "Aperture Wall"

 

 

I expect that wall will become a local landmark, it will definitely be the subject of many photos.

The store opens March 1st. They have been sharing photos on facebook and it looks fabulous. Architecture and Photography gear, what's not to love?
